Glass Mansions – “Nightswimming”

The Columbia-based band, Glass Mansions, released their latest single, “Nightswimming” last week, comprised of lead singer, Jayna, keyboardist, Blake, and guitarist, Patrick. My first encounter with this electronic-pop band was Spring Jam 2014, and I’ve been a fan since that day. The trio’s high energy mixed with their dance-friendly tunes make for one rambunctious good time. This particular single is no different according to the band, “This song is about being lost in the unknown, embracing it, and finding strength in knowing that it’s okay to let yourself get lost.”  Watch the official music video below and give this band some love. Let’s be honest, we all wish we could pull off Jayna’s hair color. 😉

2017 Festival Lineups

It’s that time of year again!

In case you missed it, large-scale music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Shaky Knees, and Shaky Beats released their lineups last week. It’s an exciting time to start planning your Springtime music adventures; however, it also makes me feel pretty old when I see these lineups. I do not recognize half of the bands listed and the more I research the more I’m out of the musical loop. Does anyone else feel like that? Send me your favorites to help jumpstart my musical education.

Love Is Lost: David Bowie

 

This past week was the anniversary of Mr. Bowie’s death; an actor, innovator, artist, musician, and showman that truly left a mark on our musical history. I have collected some of his most iconic performances, so let’s reminisce over Mr. Stardust.

I know, I know I have been MIA for about a week and I’m sorry, Team DT. A lot of life has come at me at once, and sadly, I have neglected one of my favorite things…this blog 🙁

However, during this time, I was reminded why I love music so much. There are times when you feel like life’s dart board, and the only thing that keeps you from falling apart are certain songs, musicians or bands. Johnnyswim’s “Diamonds” is just that tune for me this week. This song is my favorite by this husband/wife duo. I first heard this tune on the show, Live From Daryl’s House, and definitely wanted to share with you all.

The song has a strong, steady and almost triumphant beat that makes you keep putting one foot in front of the other. The lyrics narrate circumstances we have all encountered of distress, torment and sorrow. However, these particular times will not last forever and certainly do not define ourselves. The song even makes a point to tell those that hurt us,

You’ve taken down
So many others
Oh but you’ll know my name when you see
And in these ashes I’m stronger still

As we approach our Day O Thanks, let’s be thankful for not only the good times but also the bad times. All of our tired, ragged trials make us diamonds in the end.

Many thanks to you all that read and support,
M
